There’s always bad news when you return from a long holiday.

I can hear you muttering ‘How would I know?’

After I’d sorted out the road tax emergency and the home insurance bill crisis, I rang Eileen to see if she’d missed me. It turns out that Mike had left.

You remember Mike, the genuine toy boy. He’s 42 which is18 years younger that Eileen. They had been together for 19 years with hardly a cross word.

She just didn’t see it coming and he didn’t give a reason.

I have a cutting pinned above my desk, which says ‘Research shows that women who yell during an argument are less likely to suffer from heart disease than those who hold their tongue.’

Excellent news for me - I’m a bit of a drama queen.

Kev and I have rows. When we lived together - the students next door knocked on the wall for a bit of peace.

But Eileen is so laid back that she fell over years ago. Whatever happens, she never gets mad. However, she has had a few bouts of depression and she seldom seems really exhilarated or animated.

She and Mike have lived happily together for nearly 20 years. Mike said there was no one else.

I wonder if the relationship was doomed from the start because of the age difference or was it the lack of arguments that lead to a build up of resentment?

We’ll probably never know.

Eileen seems OK at the moment, we’re going out for the day tomorrow.

Poor Eileen - 20 years and then ka-put. I think your right about the lack of arguments - no one wants a daily Krakatoa, but best not to let things simmer too long. Hope you had a good day out.

Thanks coolbuddha:
I can let things simmer for about 25 minutes. The longer the simmer, the bigger the explosion.
We both enjoyed it - thanks.
